on record, 7 degrees. there will be differences between the obama 2009 and 2013. four years ago, the crowd estimate was nearly 2 million people. there is a big parlor game about whether the crowd estimates on the mall are ever accurate. but nearly 2 million. now they are saying between 600- to 800,000. and there are a series of other things. and the money. four years ago, the obama administration, the obama campaign raised $53 million for the inaugural with personal contributions, all capped at $50,000 or less and there was disdain expressed by the administration about taking corporate money, et cetera. all of those conditions have been lifted. they are taking corporate monet and $50,000 cap has been lifted and it's smaller. they don't expect to raise $53 million, making it easier to raise, they are saying between $40 to $50. so there is a smaller nature. that's historically consistent. inaugural speeches tend to be over hyped and anti-climactic, and the second one, even more so. >> thanks. >> a look back at the president's first term and a look ahead, when we come back. >> this is fox new

democratic control for its last two years of obama presidency where is the incentive for the two parties to get along co? >> i do not see much of one. republicans are going to try to go back to their district and say, i put up a good fight. democrats are going to back and say, there obstructionist. do not send them back. with those types of dynamics, it is set up to be just as disagreeable as the last congress. you heard the congressman said, i think they're going to call for bipartisanship. it is what a bit tricky battle for both of them. >> agreed. everyone was having their kumbaya moment, talking a good game. then immediately they started fighting just like they had for the two years previous. the republicans lost eight seats. the people better here now are more conservative than they were before. you'll see the same gridlock we saw over the past it of yours. -- two years. everyone keeps asking, what can they get done? the better question is, what do they have to get done. that is what they will get done. i do not think it will give anything done more than that. -- they will get anyth

all equally miserable. welcome to the america of obama. 25-year-old children living with parents, elderly begging for groceries because they cannot afford their own retirement. i am not surprised. things have not been going well the last five years. >> let's pull up a survey here. this is a prosperity survey. in is the top ten places to live from number one is norway. then denmark. sweden. australia. new zealand. canada. finland. here is the deal. how do we climb back to the top ten, peter? >>peter: start growing and competing more effectively. all of these places compete effectively. it is not whether they have big or small government. some have big government but what they have that we don't: effective government that delivers services at a reasonable price. the youngs have national health care. they do it for 50 percent less than we do. their taxes are not so high or their taxes go do help them opposed to paying for mindless bureaucracy. >> norway is number one. peter, will you renounce your citizenship or america still the best country to live? >> why would i renounce being a

has waned after four tough economic years. what happened? what is next? >> we gather on this date because we have chosen hope over fear. unity of purpose over conflict and discord. >> president obama swept into the presidency on the wings of change, the pick of an energized electorate, the first african-american president. he started on day one with action on an early promise. his order to close the facility at guantanamo bay in one year. >> is this a separate executive order with respect to how we will dispose of the detainees? >> gitmo remains open almost four years to the day after that signing. >> as he said on the trail in 2008 and 2012, the economy was the job won. >> the bill is passed. >> president obama had big hopes for the $787 billion stimulus bill which squeaked through congress in february of 2009 with just three republicans in the senate and no one in the house of representatives voting for it. >> the most sweeping economic recovery package to our history. i hope this investment will ignite our imagination. >> he was calling for the bailout of automakers, general mo

talked at the beginning about presidential leadership and you worked in the obama white house for a year or so. the president has too deal with the debt ceiling. he wants to pass major immigration reform. >> absolutely. >> chris: do something about climate change. has he told you how much political capital he is willing to spend on what is going to be a very tough fight? >> i think that the president has demonstrated tremendous leadership on this issue. i think the country rallied around him and h his leadership because he really was a voice for the parents who lost a child. >> chris: has he told you how much -- >> and i see from his actions and we hear from the white house and we hear from the vice president that they are going to lay down political capital on the issue and i think the one thing i would say to those people like larry and others who said we can't do anything about these issues is that whether it comes from the background checks or dealing with high capacity magazines which was the issue in newtown we can take action and to say that we should do nothing really doesn't res

, as president obama noted yesterday the u.s. economy's actually poised for a good year if only congress can get out of the way. i kind of paraphrased that last part. now that we know we're not going to be minting a trillion dollar coin, we need something different. a bill that would repeal the debt ceiling altogether. it is an idea supported publicly by alan greenspan and times man of the year last year, ben bernanke. it is an idea that could prevent lawmakers from lurching our country from one crisis to the next just to ring out some short-term gain until another republican sits in the oval office. that's why it's probably an idea that this congress has no chance of making law. but joining me now is one of the sponsors of the bill to repeal the debt ceiling altogether, democratic congressman from vermont and a member of the committee on house oversight and government reform, representative peter welch. sir, thank you so much for joining us tonight. >> good to be with you. >> john: right on. let me ask you just for starters, why does the debt ceiling exist in the first place. does it serve any

because we've seen already over the past four years what the obama administration's been doing with these air strikes. >> aerial drone strikes aside, does the cia need to pull out at the same time as the military? because doesn't the military help back up many of their operations? >> without a doubt. but the cia already maintains such a strong presence across the region it's unlikely that it's going to reduce that. there's some aspect of the cia's presence that's involved with helping the military, perhaps gathering intelligence precisely for operations that involve troops, but also that's going to shift perhaps to providing intelligence for these types of drones. a lot of that relies on human intelligence on the ground and assets on the ground. it's unlikely that is going to be reduced if the u.s. still feels it needs to have that presence as they've indicated they will. >> does the cia operate in its own kind of bubble? are they going to be able to as effectively bring this human intelligence with less people on the ground? >> well, from a technological point of view, phone i

-- between the way people feel about wall street. >> chuck, you remember the campaign, the obama campaign was very hesitant to make the argument, are you better off than you were four years ago. they finally embraced it, and the ads down the stretch. but there was always this hesitancy, because just as these statistics bear out, there is some good information, some good news. but there is also some bad news too. >> and, look, the unemployment rate is one of the good news stories. the economy is growing. not the way it needs to. but both of those in better shape. >> but the most -- the striking stat stick there, the number of troops in iraq. that was the issue that launched barack obama's candidacy, allowed him to beat hillary clinton in 2008, allowed him to beat john mccain in that general election. and you see those numbers, what they were in january, 2009. >> i forget how much people didn't like that war. and still don't like that war to this day. and that brings us to our nbc "wall street journal" poll we will have tonight and tomorrow morning. >> 6:30 tonight with the first numbers. >

mentioned for many. for many years obviously there were no women in the cabinet. but it's not good enough. i think the obama administration is saying we are noticing you are not putting women in, i think is important. >> amanda, why didn't we see the same kind of reaction particularly from the right, you know, when bush was approximatelypresident? i found it kind of striking yesterday on "meet the press"that, you know, mike murphy and hailee barber were making shots. >> on diversity. >> exactly. it's just -- it kind of begs the question of credibility from the attackers. >> uh-huh. >> do you think it's a fair point? >> well, i think that -- i mean this may say a lot about the republican party but not as much as -- not as much as expected from the republican party when it comes to diversity. i think that hailee barber has accould the republican party is terrible b it comes to reaching out to women of color. it says a lot. president obama, himself, has held up the diversity of has cabinet as something sort of extraordinary. when you do that, you are setting you

east and continue to project american power. do you view it that way? >> the first obama administration was also not an administration saying let's go find some place to bomb. neither, for that matter, was president bush's eight years. we fought the wards that we felt were necessary. president bush worked hard to try to solve other problems through diplomatic means. and so i think it's a little too stark to make this kind of characterization. i, as you well know, always believed that we should try to avoid war. we should be willing to talk to friends and willing to talk to enemies. and try to find a solution that's peaceful. but when do you find it is necessary to use military force, use it with a clear political objective in mind and use it for a decisive result. that's the kind of attitude that chuck haiglogical bring to the equation. we will be careful. he will give the president his best advice on the use or non-use of military force, how to solve the problem diplomatically. i'm sure he will be a great companion with can any that regard. it's a good team. i think it's a very,

his plan to curb gun violence to president obama tomorrow. one city is apparently not waiting around for washington act. chicago quickly becoming ground zero in the debate on gun control. that city saw more than 500 murders last year, prompting mayor rahm emanuel to take action with a gun control plan of his own. steve brown is live in chicago right now, but i guess mayor emanuel is not. he is in d.c. today suggesting democratic strategy to try to get gun control accomplished, is that right, steve? >> reporter: in a sense yes, it was part of the discussion at a public revent held in washington that mayor emanuel took part in. local press was made aware of it well in advance. it touches on the city's most dramatic problem which is gun violence in this city. you mentioned over 500 homicides. just this past weekend, three more homicides, two of them teachers, all gun related. emanuel suggested in the d.c. forum the best course of action for greater gun control measures is to force the house's hand. >> start in the senate. that is where you get your best leverage and clear the deck and h

to achieve over the next four years? guest: i think it signals two things. one signals that he wants an independent, no-nonsense voice at the table on the president. senator chuck hagel has had a close relationship with president obama. and i happen to know from a number of sources that the quality of conversation, that the nature of their conversation is a very direct, often not in agreement and that the president is not bringing on board a yes man. the second thing we need to know is that we have been dealing with chuck hagel and a way that we ought to be debating the secretary of state. this will be the secretary of defense. this is about deploying power or run the world and managing strategic assets and managing a shift where the president has said that we now have or did we have overweighted our resources in the middle east and south asia and we have underweighted our presence in asia looking at china. that shift is like moving a giant ship of spending, resources, american men and women being deployed in different places, as well as strategic asset purchasing, what weapons and t
